Mandriva 2007 Control center package install problem

I'm trying to install "ndiswrapper-1.21-1mdv2007.0" from my Mandriva 2007 Free DVD from Linux Mag.
The problem is that after 'Applying' the changes in Control Center I get an error message after it appears to have installed saying:
"There was a problem during the installation: unable to remove package"
Just to see if it was isolated to this one package, I tried installing another but alas the same error message came up.
The thing that gets me is that when I type - ndiswrapper in the Konsole
Can anyone shed any light onto this?

The aim of this exercise is to be able to get my Dlink DWL-510 WLAN card setup!
Thank in advance

You would be better off changing your repository from the DVD to one of the many available repositories on the net. Any of the places in my signature will assist you in doing this. If you use the smarturpmi site after choosing your source locations it will produce a script for you to run as root to automate the whole process instead of you having to type the locations in yourself.

There are step by step instructions on updating your source list in this post:
